Dir. Vincente Minnelli. 1958, 115 mins. 35mm. With Leslie Caron, Louis Jourdan, Maurice Chevalier. The CinemaScope frame is crammed with exquisite detail in this thrillingly visualized musical about a young girl’s coming-of-age in wealthy turn-of-the-century Paris. The winner of nine Oscars (a record at the time), including Best Picture, Director, Cinematography, Art Direction, Costume Design, Song, and Score, Gigi is a triumph on every level, like a Toulouse-Lautrec painting sprung to giddy life.
